Q. How come you landed in the arts of cartoon, as we all know that you commence your career as a journalist?

Triambak Sharma: I was fond of minimalistic stuff. Not an enthusiast of literature and writing as I found it quite laboured work and with all voluble style and pages that I am anxious about. I wanted to do something which can articulate the feelings promptly and creatively without frittering my time neither the readers! I haven't taken any lesson for cartooning. I was not a cartoonist then when I landed up in this field. The cartoon is always gauged as an additional term but the primary is a punch that every Writer needed. You can say I was god gifted with this skill as I had good punches for every circumstance. This is where my journey began as a cartoonist .
